Celtic are unbeaten in six now across all competitions as Neil Lennon will hope that a revival of fortunes is well under way.
They won four of the games over 90 minutes, though a note of caution is in order given the teams they’ve faced over this period.
A 3-2 win over Lille was reasonably impressive, though domestically the teams Celtic have faced recently haven’t been all that. The Scottish Cup saw them take on Championship leaders Hearts, while their four league fixtures during this time saw them take on bottom-three outfits St. Johnstone, Ross County and Hamilton, as well as another bottom-half side in Kilmarnock.
Dundee are up in fifth place and have proven themselves a tough side to overcome on their return to the Premiership.
Since going down 4-0 to in back-to-back clashes away at Kilmarnock and Rangers in late August/early September, they’ve lost by more than a single strike in just one of 17 subsequent fixtures across all competitions.
Dundee Utd +2 Asian Handicap
In the league alone, Dundee Utd are a highly respectable W6-D7-L7, losing just 1-0 to an 83rd-minute strike when welcoming the Hoops to Tannadice Park earlier this season.
They also went down by a single goal when facing Rangers earlier this month, and with a W3-D6-L3 record over their last 12 fixtures, look well worth getting behind on the handicap.
Across all competitions, Celtic’s 3-0 win over Hamilton last time out was just the second in 19 fixtures since October where they’d triumphed by a three-goal margin.
It was also the first in 10 appearances, while only six of the 19 games in total saw them win by a minimum two clear goals.
Under 2.5 Goals
A tight match would certainly help Dundee Utd’s prospects of getting something from this game and encouragement is given by each of Celtic’s last four at home in the league featuring fewer than three goals.
Meanwhile, the visitors have had a maximum of two goals in 10 of their last 13 in all competitions, with none of these matches exceeding three strikes.
In the league alone, Dundee Utd have seen under 2.5 goals land in each of their past five road trips, with just six goals in total across these as four ended in a draw.
Only St. Mirren’s matches have seen fewer goals per game than Dundee Utd’s this season, and if Celtic’s recovery is to continue, we wouldn’t expect them to run away with proceedings.
